WT Docket No. 16-239
Adopted:  July 27, 2016                                                 Released:  July 28, 2016

By the Commission:
1. In this Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM), we propose, in response to a petition for 
rulemaking filed by the American Radio Relay League, Inc. (ARRL),1 to amend Part 97 of the 
Commission�s Rules regarding technical standards applicable to data communications that may be 
transmitted in the Amateur Radio Service.  Specifically, we propose to remove limitations on the symbol 
rate (also known as baud rate)�the rate at which the carrier waveform amplitude, frequency, and/or 
phase is varied to transmit information2�applicable to data emissions in certain amateur bands.  We 
believe that this rule change will allow amateur service licensees to use modern digital emissions, thereby 
better fulfilling the purposes of the amateur service and enhancing its usefulness.
This URL gives you the ability to assess how the NPRM would affect your operations in Ham Radio. Does it make
your station a Ham Station or just a super pricey SWL listening post?

LarrysList -- Larry's List of Amateur Radio Hams & Friends
This is an email list that originates from the West Coast of Missouri! Primarily postings from the Kansas City area but don't be fooled, it is like 4SQRP, there are list members from all over and not just KC. Take a peek at the list chatter.

4S-Low Pass FilterFeaturing the famous NMØS Spiral coils, it is a None Simpler design, as seen in the NS-40 transmitter. This innovative and highly effective Low Pass Filter (LPF) is a must have for experimeters and those wishing to make sure their rig is legal. It's available in either an 80M or 40M version. The kit includes all the components to finish the build, including a beautiful jet black pcb enclosure - another NM0S hallmark. At 3"x 2"x 3" it will fit easily in your portable operating bag, and on your desk or workbench. It is a quick build, and has been chosen as the build session kit at OzarkCon 2015.  See......
Wednesday night NETS......looks like some of the Wednesday nets are taking a break until around October 1st. Actually if you have the ability to just listes in on 7.122 MHz then you may find Group members just looking for a QSO. If the bands are trashed then it is a perfect time to be building rigs so when Winter gets here, you have a new rig to enjoy!
